Successfully Integrate HR Systems: An Interview with MasterCard’s SVP Lois Miller
The call to be more efficient intensified after the onset of the great recession. Due to economic uncertainty and increasing competition the drive to streamline labor-intensive processes remains a top priority for many companies worldwide.
One of the key techniques HR uses to become efficient and effectively deliver solid service delivery value is to integrate HR systems into one solution. Let’s face it…integrating HR systems is no less easy then cramming a handful of cooked spaghetti into one narrow container.
If HR Integration is not done right it can lead to complete disaster. If not carefully planned loss of money, time, resources, and functional credibility will certainly result.
